If you ever needed a reason to hit the gym with one of our trainer’s the below article says it all!
“Being unfit on a treadmill or in an exercise stress test has a worse prognosis, as far as death, than being hypertensive, being diabetic or being a current smoker. We’ve never seen something as pronounced as this and as objective as this.”

It’s New Year’s resolution time again and you’ve been thinking about helping your child get healthy. This is the year you’re going to do it. That’s great! You’re on the right track. But…as any gym owner will tell you, though the treadmills might be full of determined exercisers every January, come March or April, the gym’s back to normal again. So why are New Year’s resolutions so hard to keep?
According to clinical psychologist Dr. Amanda di Bartolomeo, there’s good reason people lose patience when trying to make changes: “Changing behavior can be hard because it takes time. When you think of how long it took to develop the habits you have now – most of them have been developed over a lifetime – it makes sense that changing these behaviors would take time and effort.” But don’t despair. When you start thinking of achieving your goals as a long game, momentum can be your ally. “Starting with very small changes is more likely to lead to success and the feeling of success motivates maintaining new behaviors.”
Live Light Live Right Warrior Basketball Team traveled to the Barley’s Center to see The Nets crush the Denver Nuggets 116-111! With Coach Martin leading the way via subway, the kids and some of their parents cozied up in their seats to watch the exciting teams duke it out on the court. “What an amazing night we had! All of the training our team has done over the last couple months came to life seeing these professional athletes doing the same drills and lay-ups we do during our practices. “The kids had a great time and it was great seeing them enjoy themselves,” said Coach Martin. As the night began to wind down, the kids were given Nets t-shirts, towels and bobble head player dolls by The Nets Organization! Everyone enjoyed being a part of a great night! “I would most definitely recommend the Live Light Live Right Program to any parent whose child is struggling with their weight. Especially to join the Warrior Basketball team!” said Kamilla, mother of Christian, age 10.
